Everything you think you know is about to change. My name is Lucifer. You can call me Lucy – I’m also known as the Devil and Satan, though why my idiot brothers came up with those nicknames is beyond me. I’m an Arch Angel and I run Hell. Yup, I’m the CEO. Hell is easy. Hell runs like a well-oiled machine. Punishment befitting your sins is carried out and once your sentence is done, voilà, you get to go to Heaven. Simple. Easy. Until suddenly there’s a blip on the radar. A breach. Some numbnuts on earth are trying to open a portal to another dimension. A very bad, very terrifying, very deadly dimension. So instead of my simple life in Hell, I end up earth side, where nothing is as it seems, looking for the soul-stealing monster, avoiding the grumpy angel sent from Heaven and finding out my brothers Michael and Gabriel are twats. That last part’s not true – I’ve known they were twats all along. With an unexpected fondness for my new human friends as a distraction, and my demonic presence stirring up trouble of epic proportions, all I want to do is go back to my peaceful life in Hell. But someone has to save the world. It may as well be me.

It must have been Otieno's idea of a joke. Too many offended egos back at headquarters, too many influential people unhappy with him in Nairobi. And yet, with his record, he was almost impossible to dismiss. So Otieno had sent Mollel straight to Hell. When we first met Detective Mollel in Hour of the Red God, he was heralded as "a wonderfully complex and tragic protagonist" (Booklist), and Richard Crompton's novel called "spellbinding" (The Christian Science Monitor) and "a fantastic read" (The Plain Dealer [Cleveland]). Now Mollel returns in Hell's Gate, only this time the Maasai warrior-turned-detective has been banished from Nairobi, Kenya's bustling metropolis, to a small, fly-blown town on the edge of a national park. His career, he thinks, has taken a nosedive. His colleagues on the police force are a close-knit group and they have not taken kindly to a stranger in their midst. Mollel suspects they are guilty of the extortion and bribery that plague the force. But when the body of a flower worker turns up in the local lake, he begins to wonder if they might be involved in something even more disturbing. For all is not as it seems in Hell's Gate. Amid rumors of a local death squad, disappearances, and blackmail, Mollel is forced not only to confront his Maasai heritage but also to ask himself where justice truly lies. In upholding the law, is he doing what is right? Crompton captures contemporary Kenya in all its complexity, and Hell's Gate is a captivating novel that you won't be able to put down.

In this raw and moving memoir, Claude Thomas describes his service in Vietnam, his subsequent emotional collapse, and his remarkable journey toward healing. At Hell's Gate is not only a gripping coming-of-age story but a spiritual travelogue from the horrors of combat to the discovery of inner peace—a journey that inspired Thomas to become a Zen monk and peace activist who travels to war-scarred regions around the world. "Everyone has their Vietnam," Thomas writes. "Everyone has their own experience of violence, calamity, or trauma." With simplicity and power, this book offers timeless teachings on how we can all find healing, and it presents practical guidance on how mindfulness and compassion can transform our lives. This expanded edition features: • Discussion questions for reading groups • A new afterword by the author reflecting on how the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are affecting soldiers—and offering advice on how to help returning soldiers to cope with their combat experiences

Conrad Voort's family members have enforced the law in New York City for three centuries, since Manhattan was a Dutch colony. Raised from childhood to be a detective, he heads a vast cop clan, with its own code of honor and obligation. But now he faces his most dangerous adversary yet -- a man who has the power to destroy the family and will stop at nothing to prevent Voort from uncovering a terrible new kind of crime. Detective Voort and his beautiful fiancée, Camilla, are kayaking New York City's Hell's Gate, a treacherous section of the East River and graveyard for several centuries' worth of ships, when they spot a body floating in the water. The death seems related to a tragedy that happened in Hell's Gate over two hundred years ago. But could it also involve something more modern, menacing, and international in scope? With the help of TV producer Camilla and his partner, Mickie, Voort pursues the clues. But something doesn't feel right about the trail the dead man left behind. What starts out to be a complex investigation takes a sinister turn when Voort falls into the clutches of a man whose bloodless methods of persuasion have Voort stricken with real terror, for his family, his fiancée, and himself. But the man with the dead voice leaves Voort with few choices. Psychologically crippled, he can no longer confide in his fiancée or his partner. He must ignore the long-standing law of the clan -- and his brother officers -- and take action alone. Breathlessly paced and filled with Ethan Black's trademark explosive action, At Hell's Gate is a spellbinding new thriller that follows a man fighting to find the truth, save his family, and redeem himself.
